Why are there many games on AH that ended months or even years ago? Wouldn't it be better to just delete them?

It's better to see:
Nov. 3, 43 games, 249 active players (209 unique).

Than:
Nov. 3, 3 games, 30 active players (15 unique).

In a depressing mood, Micha?
Just alone in the Fledging Admiral games there are 18 unique players, of those are 5 newbies. So I think that the situation is much better than your dark mood makes it look like.

When taking into account that Stars is old, without fancy graphics and with absolutely no advertisement, I am quite astonished that it is still possible to interest so many new players for Stars.

On the other hand, Stars is one of the best strat & tact games, so why should it be differently *grin

and if you look closely at the players/hosts, quite a few of the games hosted are "independant" of HWF too.

We're not the only life in Stars! ...I found a small group at the XKCD forums too. Smile

Sure it would... sometimes game hosts forget to email me and let me know when their game has ended.

I went through my queue a few months ago and removed lots of games. Those that are left, nobody's told me that they're done.

I know at least one of them specifically didn't want to join Autohost, for whatever reason. (in his defense, I knew about AH long before I decided I wanted to join and play with others, so it's not too uncommon)
